Dong Thap

Being a next

Dong Thap, 172km southwest of Ho Chi Minh City, is a charming province in the Mekong Delta with its capital city Cao Lanh.

 

SIGHTSEEING SPOTS:

Tam Nong Natural Reserve, which is home to 220 species of birds identified with the reserve of 8,000 hectares and 53km in path. In this park, visitors can observe redheaded cranes, one of 15 endangered species of cranes in the world. In fact, cranes have played an important role in history. Thousands of years BC, images of cranes were used in interior decoration in European aristocratic families. In the Orient, cranes were and are still worshipped as examples of faithfulness and national longevity. Different from any other species of birds in the area, cranes find their food only on land; they must therefore migrate to avoid the rainy season in Dong Thap Muoi. Cranes stay in Tam Nong Park from December to June.

Tan Qui Dong village of Sa Dec, about 3km from the provincial capital of Sa Dec, is famous all over Vietnam for its flower gardens, particularly rose gardens. Roses are transported daily to shops in Ho Chi Minh City and other provinces. Some nurseries cultivating medicinal herbs are also located in this area.
Nguyen Sinh Sac (President Ho Chi Minhs father) Tomb is about 2km from Cao Lanh along National Road 23. The tomb was built between August 1975 and February 1977 on an area of one hectare in memory of the man who raised a Vietnamese national hero.


Xeo Quit Base is located in the villages of My Hiep and My Long in the Cao Lanh District, 30km from the town of Cao Lanh. For years ago, the area was a wasteland with dangerous, tangled canals and streams, and was chosen as a strategic guerrilla base (at the end of 1959) by the Communist Party Committee of Kien Giang Province (now Dong Thap Province). Xeo Quit has now been transformed into an area for tourism. Inside the forest, through various creeping plants and vines there are restored vestiges: fortifications, bomb shelters and underground hideouts. There is also the house where the provincial Party Committee met.
White Stork sanctuary.
